Abhishek goes out and out commercial in 2012

As the New Year begins for Abhishek Bachchan, the actor seems to have fairly and squarely left the experimentation mode behind. With an eye on commercial entertainers that promise guaranteed results (well almost) and are aimed at entertaining a wider audience instead of merely suiting the sensibilities of filmmakers who wish to bring in a much required 'change' in the grammar of cinema, Abhishek is clear that coming months would be focused on getting some hits under his belt.

"Yes, this is pretty much the need of the hour," says an industry expert, "If you look at some of his last few films, his characterisation left a lot to be desired as well. In DUM MAARO DUM his character died a premature death. GAME was too complicated for many to comprehend. Audience expected him to be a conventionally revolutionary in KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY instead of being a subtle participant whereas the true essence of his character just didn't come out well in RAAVAN."

Things should change though in 2012 as Abhishek would be expecting a much better outing in months to come. While PLAYERS and BOL BACHCHAN should be just the kind of massy entertainers that Abhishek would be waiting for, shooting of DHOOM 3 kick-starts later this year as well. Thankfully for him, each of these films has a certain credibility attached which means a better success ratio is definitely on the anvil.


"PLAYERS has Abbas-Mustan at the helm of affairs who seldom mess up. They know the pulse of the audience. Rohit Shetty directs BOL BACHCHAN and he knows a thing or two about entertaining audience. He is easily the biggest commercially successful director that we have today in the industry," he continues, "And then of course DHOOM 3 doesn't need any introduction. If you look at these three films closely, Abhishek is going conventional without getting into any experimenting mode. That should really suit him for months ahead."

We hope for the same as well.
